Jean Segura leaves game in first inning with head injury

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Brewers shortstop was hit in the head in the first inning on a stretch swing by Ryan Braun.

There was a scary moment in the top of the first inning, as Jean Segura was helped to the Brewers clubhouse before his first at-bat.  Reports came out that Segura was hit in the head by a warm-up swing from Ryan Braun, and replays showed that Segura walked into one of Braun's swings as he was stretching with the bat.  There is no word on how severe the injury is at this point.  We will update you as we hear more on the injury.

Jeff Bianchi pinch hit for Segura in the first inning, and he has gone 2-for-2 with 2 RBI filling in at shortstop through the first two innings.

Update: Pitching coach Rick Kranitz reported that Segura had a gash under his right eye.  No word beyond that so far.
